Endowed Scholarships | Marian University

Endowed scholarships

For many students, pursuing the dream of a college education is out of reach because they lack the financial resources for tuition, books, housing, and other expenses.

Endowed scholarships enable Marian University students to earn their degrees at the only Catholic university in Indianapolis—one that's grounded by Franciscan values and focused on providing transformational educations for students from all backgrounds.

The friends, alumni, and supporters of Marian University who create endowed scholarships for our students can designate that their gift be used to support the programs and values they hold most dear. 

Why create an endowment?

  • Endowments are legacies of generosity. By creating an endowment at Marian University, you receive the opportunity to honor a loved one, valued colleague, or mentor. 
  • The scholarship you support through an endowment is a reliable source of funding as we plan to accommodate current and future students.

How much is an endowment?

  • The minimum requirement for an endowed scholarship is $50,000.
  • That funding may come from one donor or from many donors who join forces to create the scholarship.

What is the impact of an endowment?

  • When you give an endowed gift to Marian University, you are providing support for generations of students.
  • Endowments support the Catholic faith, Franciscan values, and traditions upon which the university is founded.
